Good in very good dust jacket. Highlighting/underlining. 1st printing of the 1st edition. DJ in fine condition. Book LOOKS fine, but most pages have a few sentences underlned in yellow. Alexander's 1st baseball biography was his award winning work on Ty Cobb. Here, he tries his hand with the irascible and volatile John. McGraw-Hall of Fame manager of the Baltimore Orioles & New York Giants, and succeeds equally well. BW photos.
Near Fine. DJ Near Fine. Large Octavo. From Library Journal: "Alexander portrays famed Giant manager John McGraw without sentimental bias. McGraw's career is a story of two baseball eras: its rowdy early days and the cool, corporate operations of post-World War I. McGraw's constant umpire baiting, penchant for inspiring either hatred or loyalty, and bond with star pitcher Christy Mathewson through many championship years, reveal a fiery, dictatorial, and brilliant man. Highly recommended." 358pp.
